Tasting Notes
Forward, electric and fruity in the nose with notes of sweet melon, cherry, and hints of applesauce, lily and vanilla. On the palate this sake is slightly off dry, medium bodied and rich with flavors of red plum, star anise, winter squash and notes of wet rock, accented by medium acidity, and a memorable, lingering finish.

Brewery Description

Shirataki Sake Brewery is based in Echigo Yuzawa Town, Niigata Prefecture, an area renowned for its heavy snowfall. In spring the snow melts to provide an abundance of clear natural mineral water a prime ingredient for sake, which consists of 85% water. The molten snow passes though a coal seam when running downhill from mountain peaks: thus a natural charcoal filtration process further accentuates the taste and quality of the water.
